Hellas Verona has closed the deal for 19-year-old goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, whose contract with Manchester United is expiring. As reported by Gazzetta dello Sport, the operation is basically defined, only the official announcement is missing. Gollini is considered one of the most interesting prospects in the European landscape in his position. He was raised between Spal and Fiorentina and flew to England at 16. He has been called up few times for the Italian U-19 team. He has decided to return to Italy, like Michele Fornasier did last year joining Sampdoria. Gollini already informed United that he doesn’t want to renew his contract. He should be Rafael’s backup at Hellas Verona. Gollini returns home.
